"Emphasizes doing what is best for the child based on sound principles of how young children learn. It is not a ‘recipe’ book as many others are."
"The book gives a variety of good examples of real life situations teachers encounter daily in their classrooms . . . There are many books with early childhood education curriculum activities but not many with specific strategies for everyday needs . . . The examples and stories show humor and a good knowledge of what are appropriate child development practices."
"Contains many gems. Gives hands–on examples that will surely stimulate many teachers to help their students appreciate diversity and become more comfortable with peers who sound, look, behave, or learn in a different manner. This information alone may be worth the cost of the book for many teachers."
"The focus is on the children, following their interests, and creating an environment that supports their creativity. The book is filled with practical, use-it-today activities that can make a difference in the learning atmosphere in classrooms."
